Situated on top of a broad hill with good views across to Strangford Lough to north this
site is built of Silurian Shale. It consists of  2 long side stones,1m in height supporting
a longer capstone 0.6m in depth. The great length of the side stones and capstone and
the lack of end stones suggest that this might be the surviving remnant of a lintelled
gallery grave. No trace survives of any covering cairn.
